Over the past week or so I took Erdrique through Ataraxia’s Haven and the Restless Isles. One thing that both of these areas have in common are the wildmen. Going by the appropriate level ranges, you come across Ataraxia’s Haven first and then come on toward the Restless Isles. However, there is a discrepancy here. The storyline for the Restless Isles indicates that the wildmen the descendants of the servants of the Quori and they are only found in the Restless Isles. This is why the wildmen can enter the Twilight Forge without any problems, however, if the wildmen are limited to the Restless Isles then how did they make their way to Ataraxia’s Haven? They are also located in the Skyfall Coast, where they are present when the forces of Droaam begin to start their siege on Stormreach.
So, then what is going on here? I have two theories here and am wondering if there are any others. My first theory is that the Restless Isles is the center for the wildmen. I’m thinking that some of the wildmen were pushed out by the Runetusk Ogre clan and as a result they made their way to Ataraxia’s Haven and to the Skyfall Coast. Therefore they have migrated to new areas to establish a new home.
My second theory, perhaps the Quori once used these two areas for some purpose as well. Perhaps there are some ancient Quori secrets here, and similar to the Restless Isles, these wildmen are the descendants of those servants for the Quori. So it could be possible that the reports from Ataraxia’s Haven and the Skyfall Coast weren’t up to date, therefore suggesting to the explorers of the Restless Isles that the only place wildmen were found were located there.
So does anybody else have any other suggestions or thoughts? Thanks for reading and happy hunting in the Islands!!
